The beautiful wedding ceremony of Cheryl and Matt took place in the Saint Gabriel Catholic Church in Chesterfield. Both Cheryl and Matthew wanted to go the traditional way and not see each other before the wedding.
This gorgeous venue gave me plenty of opportunities to click memorable pictures of the ceremony and the family in attendance.
The reception party was later hosted at the Brandermill Country Club in Midlothian.
The bride and groom party was a fun lot of people comprising two bridesmaids, two matrons of honor (Cheryl wanted her sister Vickie and best friend, Julie, to be her matrons of honor), three groomsmen and one bestman. And of course, I cannot forget the cute little flower girls and ring bearer who made the ceremony even more beautiful.
Both Cheryl and Matthew had their parents present at the wedding. The couple had a very unique theme for their wedding-navy blue and silver with sunflowers. The idea was to have a sober background color scheme and add a dash of brightness with the yellow sunflowers! I loved this concept and it worked extremely well for the pictures too.
The floral arrangement for the wedding was done by florist Jan Daniel. Jan also made and delivered the wedding cake for Cheryl and Matthew (TAA-DAA Cakery).
Following the ceremony at the church, the entire wedding party gathered at the reception venue at around 4pm. The celebrations started off with the guests dancing to some amazing music played by Joe Bowman from Dynamite DJ’s. Of course, I really enjoyed clicking the family and friends having so much fun!

Pictures were one of my top priorities for my wedding. I spent a lot of time reading through photographers and even contacting some. I was also pretty nervous, I had never been professionally photographed before. Crystal and her team were SO easy to work with and immediately took away the nerves. I trusted her completely and I am so happy I did. Cannot recommend enough! Ellen - Yorktown VA
If you're looking for an amazing photographer who is relaxed, has experience, and knowledge look no further. Crystal took our engagement and wedding photos. Not only were her photos amazing, but she is extremely responsive to messages and will even help you when planning your big day. It was important to us to work with a photographer who has experience with same sex couples, and Crystal and Casey did a great job capturing everything for my wife and I. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. - Emily - Nellysford, VA
